Excellent Tour
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had a fantastic time. Angel was the best! Lunch was amazing and we saw and learned so much about the country and inhabitants. It was a great day with some shopping opportunities. This company supports local schools, so that is a bonus. We booked at the hotel and paid more than the price listed on TripAdvisor. Should have booked here!

Best Tour!
Jul 2021
My entore family of 5 enjoyed this excursion. Our guide Angel was OUTSTANDING! He was so full of knowledge and energy.

We tasted sugar cane, watched cigars being rolled, visited a traditional home and ate the BEST food that we had on our entire vacation. I would recommend anyon that wantd to learn about the country go on this tour and ask for Angel.

Great day in the country

Our guide, Nacho, was wonderful. He has a great sense of humor and really made the day fun for everyone. We visited two farms and had a typical Dominican meal in the country. The entire day was interesting and fun.

Started good but turned bad
Mar 2021 • Family
They only want your money. We had to split our group because of age. Grandma and Grandpa was taking the youngest back to the resort after the monkey land adventure. We prearranged this before we purchased. We were told no problem we will arrange that. They made us wait for the second group for the bus. The fun we had got used up keeping a 3 year old busy for 1.5 hours. If everyone is participating in all the adventures planned then does not look bad. If not, it's very frustrating trying to make arrangements with no assistance.

The real Dominican Republic
Feb 2021
My wife and I were staying at Hyatt Zilara and had booked a tour through another company. We were cancelled at last minute with no notice but were able to book with Bavaro Runners through the hotel. Darius (guide) and driver JC arrived right on time and immediately began our countryside tour. Darius was able to tell us all about his country in a way that was both entertaining and informative. The tour included a cigar rolling exhibition, a trip to Higuey with a bacilica tour. Tour and lunch at a Dominican home and so much more. We would definitely recommend.

A Wonderful Experience
This by far was my favorite excursion while in the DR. The tour took us into the mountains where we can to see the Dominican country side. Our tour guides Darius and others provided us with the history of the country and the people. It was very informative. And as you traveled through the small villages and towns you got the true sense of how people lived and what it is to be Dominican. The sights like the Basilica were breath taking and its history. Watching cigars being made right in front of you and actually getting to smoke one was a real treat for me. Learning about the history of the sugar industry and enjoying sugar cane brought back childhood memories for me. And finally topping off the tour with an authentic Dominican lunch, had me going back for seconds, absolutely delicious. All in all the tour lasted about 6 hours. This is one I would highly recommend to take so you can get the real feel of the DR. Thanks for the amazing journey Darius!!
